And on account of the economy, I've been taking more jobs that require traveling. And now as I pack my bags and charge my camera batteries and check list after list, I have visions of my kitty sitting in the hallway at night meowing all alone wondering where her next treat will come from. And though I know cats are fine alone over night (and even for 2 nights with food and water), I wonder if I worry for nothing. Perhaps she is like me. She's probably seeing our bags and thinking FINALLY, SOME FREEDOM! I will leave the Neil Diamond CDs, magazines, and some pie* out for her just in case.
*That's a joke. I know cats can't have pie. Don't send me hate mail.
